All around the world, thousands of initiatives are demonstrating that we can create a better future: resilient communities, healthier ecosystems, equitable economies. The Economics of Happiness Conference aims to connect the dots, translate understanding into action, and build a movement for re-localizing economies. Featuring leading figures in the global-to-local movement, The Economics of Happiness Conference is the fourth in a series of international conferences hosted by Local Futures (formerly known as the International Society for Ecology and Culture), the organization that produced the popular film “The Economics of Happiness”. According to Local Futures’ Director, Helena Norberg-Hodge, “Localization is a win-win strategy that allows us to tackle the most urgent problems of our time – inequality, financial instability, climate change, and more – while at the same time increasing our own psychological well-being.” Helena Norberg-Hodge is just one of the speakers in an lineup of cutting-edge thinkers, writers, and activists, including Your Money or Your Life author Vicki Robin, local finance expert Michael Shuman, education critic Manish Jain, Executive Director of Sustainable Economies Law Center Janelle Orsi, indigenous right activist Jihan Gearon, Nigerian poet and psychologist Bayo Akomolafe, former Portland mayoral candidate Cameron Whitten, globalization critic Jerry Mander, and “stand-up economist” Yoram Bauman. The conference will take place at The Eliot Center in the heart of Portland, Oregon – a city known for its thriving local economy and innovative grassroots organizing –and will include plenaries, panels, interactive workshops and other participatory sessions. The wide range of inter-connected topics will include: local food, public policy, democracy, local business, the commons, cooperatives, local finance, spirituality, economic indicators, health, education, bridging the North-South divide, the new economy movement, climate justice, cultural diversity, biodiversity, environmental justice, income inequality, and the impact of the economy on our personal well-being.

“There’s no idea in the world that is not contained by black life. I could write forever about the black experience in America.” ~~ August Wilson Get ready to celebrate and elevate when an amazing group of talented high school students from across the Portland Metropolitan Area find their song through Wilson's unforgettable characters and words. Meet our Emcee: Star of Stage and Screen, and our very own Teaching Artist RUSSELL HORNSBY You know him as Detective Hank Griffin on the fantastical Portland-based show, GRIMM, but have you seen him in the critically-acclaimed ABC Family drama series LINCOLN HEIGHTS or on HBO’s IN TREATMENT? Did you know that on stage Hornsby originated the role of ‘Young Blood’ in August Wilson’s JITNEY and won both the Obie and Drama Desk Awards for ensemble work. He moved on to play leading roles in the production of Lynn Nottage’s ‘Intimate Apparel’ starring opposite Viola Davis, starred in the New York Off Broadway revival of KING HEDLEY II and the August Wilson Century Cycle Series at the Kennedy Center. Most recently, Hornsby made his Broadway debut alongside Denzel Washington and Viola Davis in August Wilson’s FENCES. Beginning in our inaugural year in 2014, Russell Hornsby was our special guest teaching artist. He has continued to coach students for the 2015 season. AWMC students know him as someone who gets up very close and personal, asks for stillness, asks for an understanding and appreciation of Wilson’s poetry and music. Live DJ! So when we asked Russell to Emcee the Portland Regional Finals, he insisted on making this a full-on cultural celebration of words and music. “The music, along with Wilson’s words, take us on the journey of our culture,” said Hornsby. “We’ve got the blues, jazz, R&B, to hip hop. That brings us up to date.” WE ARE KEEPING IT LIVE! A CELEBRATION OF THE STUDENTS, THE PLAYWRIGHT, THE MUSIC AN ELEVATION OF OUR COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS. IT’S FREE General admission.

Socialist Alternative Portland Oregon Branch Invites You: RENT CONTROL TOWN HALL Wednesday March 4th - 7:30 PM 1126 SW Park Ave (at Madison), 1st Congregational UCC Rent Control Is The Forbidden Conversation, So Naturally We Want To Have It, At Top Volume: Although 40% of Portland area residents live in rented housing, the political class continually indicates that their focus can only be the profitability of well-connected developers and the protection of higher-wage home owners. The needs of lower-income working people, especially those in service-economy jobs who badly need housing near those jobs, have been consistently left out of consideration. As with the fight for $15, winning affordable housing will require a mass movement of working people, labor, and grassroots organizations. This movement cannot limit itself to what big business will accept, but must base itself on the needs of working people. Rent Control – An Essential First Step Economists commonly define affordable housing as “only” taking up to 30% of household income. But even that is out of reach for a great many households in metropolitan areas, where real estate developers and landlords are making profits hand over fist. Rent control, which would tie all rent increases to the cost of living, is an essential first step. It would prevent rental costs from spiraling further and further out of reach of working people. “No Mystery About Rent Control” As Jess Spear, Socialist Alternative candidate for the Washington State House, said: “There is no mystery about rent control. Rent control would set limits and prevent the big property owners from rapidly raising our rents. Developers and their representatives hate rent stabilization laws for a reason – because they limit their ability to make massive profits on the backs of working people.” Come and Speak Out Please join us for an open public forum on rent control. The evening is hosted by the Portland branch of Socialist Alternative, the organization that spearheaded the campaign to elect Kshama Sawant to Seattle City Council, the first independent socialist elected in a major U.S. city in decades. Branch leaders will offer perspectives on the political platforms of recent independent campaigns in the region that have included the demand for rent control, and event organizers will offer space for those most affected by this crisis to present their observations. We invite all members of the renting public to gather together and share their experiences and frustrations. The event intends unity under the declaration that city rental housing is in a state of emergency that demands immediate, emergency attention from policymakers. 7:30 PM Wednesday March 4th 2015 First Congregational Church, 1126 SW Park Avenue ADA Accessible - Gender Neutral Restroom On Site Coffee and cake will be served!

Bark's forest resource library will be holding open hours on Monday, March 9th, 5pm to 9pm and will continue to meet the second Monday of each month. Feel free to swing by any time between 5pm & 9pm. This month we are excited to have the friendly folks from Cascadia Wild join us to discuss tracking and the awesome work that they do for the critters of Mt Hood. Please join us at 6 pm for the start of their presentation. And of course feel free to come by early or stay a bit later for a tour of the Bark Library too. Our library is more than a physical space; it is also intangible, represented by Bark volunteers who are knowledgeable and accessible for people interested in learning more about our work, ecology, public lands management and advocacy. Come peruse our newly acquired selection of resources on everything from hiking to climate justice, and learn about what you can do to protect Mt. Hood National Forest!

Portland Revels marks its 20th annual Christmas Revels with a new production set in 17th century London during the Caroline era. The time of Charles I of England and the Three Musketeers will come vividly to life through period music, dance, costumes and European traditions in this holiday celebration from veteran Revels scriptwriter Gray Eubank. Beginning in the Tower of London in 2014, the Christmas Revels Keep Magic follows a young teen who, after being transported back in time, meets Henry Percy the Wizard Earl, and Morley, a resourceful prankster. Bruce Hostetler directs and Robert Lockwood is the musical director, with a cast featuring Tobias Andersen and Burl Ross. Christmas Revels is a popular form of seasonal production that features traditional dances, music and songs in celebration of the winter solstice. Familiar highlights of the Portland Revels’ annual event include mumming, the medieval Abbots Bromley Horn dance, and the central showpiece, the Lord of the Dance.

Join us for Stewardship Saturdays, our monthly restoration work parties at locations all around the watershed!

A reading group for science fiction/fantasy works with themes and characters that provoke discussions about the concepts of gender and sexuality.The sci-fi/fantasy genre allows us to intimately experience worlds in which the rules/laws of our own world can be cast aside and different structures, (biological, technological, psychological, sociological, etc.) can be explored. Our intention is to read books that fall into the general category of science fiction or fantasy, expanding our selections as the group sees fit. Authors such as Octavia Butler, Ursula LeGuin, and James Tiptree are examples, but there are no set limitations on who we will read. The books we choose to read may leave us feeling positive and affirmed, but they may also leave us depressed or angry, hopefully they will always be thought-provoking, stimulating and challenging.

The time of Charles I of England and the Three Musketeers will come vividly to life through period music, dance, costumes and European traditions in this holiday celebration from veteran Revels scriptwriter Gray Eubank. Beginning in the Tower of London in 2014, the Christmas Revels Keep Magic follows a young teen who, after being transported back in time, meets Henry Percy the Wizard Earl, and Morley, a resourceful prankster. Bruce Hostetler directs and Robert Lockwood is the musical director, with a cast featuring Tobias Andersen and Burl Ross. Christmas Revels is a popular form of seasonal production that features traditional dances, music and songs in celebration of the winter solstice. Familiar highlights of the Portland Revels’ annual event include mumming, the medieval Abbots Bromley Horn dance, and the central showpiece, the Lord of the Dance.

Thursday, March 19 marks 12 years since the devastating US invasion of Iraq. Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group (IAG) will hold a visibility action to call for the US to get out once and for all, as troops continue to flow back into the country under the pretext of "fighting ISIS." The action will run from 4:00-6:00 PM that day at the intersection of NE Couch and Martin Luther King Jr Blvd (at the east end of the Burnside Bridge). The IAG's "Tower of Peace" will remind motorists, cyclists and pedestrians heading in three directions about the ongoing effects of US policies in Iraq. The title of the event is "End the Re-Invasion of Iraq-- 12 Years Later." The event will also focus on the US bombing of Syria, and the similarities between the alleged withdrawal from Iraq in 2011 and the "end of combat operations" in Afghanistan in December. The US continues to operate the world's largest embassy in Baghdad, with thousands of diplomats, "contractors" and military personnel. While there were about 250 troops in Iraq prior to the Islamic State's seizing territory in June, that number is growing to about 3000, maybe more. Airstrikes in Syria and Iraq have killed dozens of civilians (including one strike in Syria in December which apparently killed 50). The US supported the regime of Saddam Hussein during the Iran-Iraq war and then began "Gulf War part 1" in 1991 in part because of Iraq's formidable military capability that they claimed needed to be obliterated. Now, the billions of dollars in military equipment flowing to Iraq (and to Syria's "moderate" rebels) are being acquired by ISIS, perpetuating an endless cycle of war. Meanwhile, basic necessities like food, water,medicine and electricity are still not universally available to Iraqis 24 years since the imposition of sanctions, and internal fighting that did not exist prior to the 2003 invasion kills hundreds each month. One thing making the re-invasion possible is Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi granted legal immunity to the US "trainers" now flowing into the country, the sticking point for why combat troops were withdrawn in 2011. Congress recently granted President Obama funds to continue operations against ISIS for three years. Military equipment leaving Afghanistan is being stationed in Kuwait, presumably for another ground invasion of Iraq. The complicated political and military situation includes troops from Iran who are also on the ground fighting alongside the Iraqi government, and Middle Eastern nations who joined US efforts against ISIS in Iraq but are wary of the unstated goals in Syria. Since the US continues to fund, arm and train anti-government rebels there, it's only a matter of time before the airstrikes now aimed at ISIS turn into an Iraq-style "shock and awe" against Bashar Al-Assad. Participants are encouraged to use public transit. TriMet bus lines 6, 12, 19 or 20 or the Central Loop streetcar will get you to the site. Event coordinated by Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group. Cosponsored by Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility, Veterans for Peace Chapter 72, Freedom Socialist Party, Jewish Voice for Peace-Portland, Occupy Portland Elder Caucus, Women's International League for Peace and Freedom-Portland and others. Endorsed by Recruiter Watch PDX, Little Light of Mine Friends Worship Group, Americans United for Palestinian Human Rights, Portland Peaceful Response Coalition and others. For more information or to get involved contact the Iraq Affinity Group at 503-236-3065 or iraq @ pjw.info. Flyers for the event are available at .

Date: Thursday, March 26th Time: 6:00-7:00pm Location: Rosewood Initiative16126 Southeast Stark Street, Portland - There's no place to park your bike at the grocery store. - Your kid can't bike to school because of one dangerous road crossing. - Your neighborhood association is fighting a bike-friendly project. The problem is clear. The solution might even be obvious to you but how do you get others on board? How do you get the problem solved? The Bicycle Transportation Alliance has been advocating for better safer streets since 1990. In this free one-hour clinic, a BTA advocate will share some of the lessons we've learned about how to get your voice heard -- how to get your community's problems solved. Topics covered include messaging, defining success, power mapping, identifying allies, and pressure vs. persuasion. This month’s Advocacy Clinic will be presented by Carl Larson, BTA's Engagement Manager. Questions?

Abby and Zack are newlyweds subletting an apartment in the Belleville area of Paris. She’s a yoga instructor and he’s a Doctor Without Borders. Their life is idyllic, if not especially noteworthy. That is until Abby walks in on Zack with his pants literally around his ankles. As she starts pulling at little threads having to do with how Zack spends his day, BELLEVILLE builds toward a climax that asks if we can ever truly know another person. This sexy, funny, scary, and tense pseudo-thriller from one of America's hottest new playwrights will unnerve as quickly as it entertains.

I am 'creating' (but not hosting nor organizing) this event, in order to publicize the below memorial (in Eugene). ** If you plan to attend, please RSVP by emailing the group leaders ** , per their request below -- they have included an email with which to do so (details below for RSVP process). I (Joseph Herbert) am in no way associated with CNVC nor ORNCC nor this memorial service -- other than that I am hoping to attend (not guaranteed), and am inviting you to attend, if you would like.. ======================= " 5. Eugene, Salem, and Central Oregon A. The Oregon Network for Compassionate Communication (ORNCC) is sponsoring a free community gathering to celebrate the life and teachings of the founder of Nonviolent Communication Marshall Rosenberg, who died February 7, 2015. WHERE: St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, 1300 Pearl St., Eugene 97401 WHEN: Thursday, April 9, 2015 from 7 to 9 pm (it will be rush-hour, so please allow extra time, incl. for parking, etc, if you are driving -- bicycling and/or Amtrak and/or local public transit are also efficient, sustainable, and lower-stress options than driving. If you must drive, perhaps carpool? (see Eugene's public transit website w/ all options, here: http://eugene-or.gov/index.aspx?NID=654 ) Dr. Rosenberg founded the Center for Nonviolent Communication (cnvc.org ) and for more than forty years traveled the world teaching the self-awareness and communication skills he developed. He changed the lives of many thousands of people, and left as part of his legacy teachers and groups of people learning and practicing the skills he developed that contribute to peace and compassion. People whose lives were enriched by Marshall’s teachings are invited to come together to celebrate Marshall and to acknowledge his contribution to their lives. This event will also be an opportunity for participants to join in creating a more engaged and active NVC community in the Eugene-Springfield area, dedicated to learning and spreading the teachings and consciousness of Compassionate Communication. ORNCC board members welcome co-founder Bryn Hazell and others from Bend who will share the experience of co-creating their NVC community in Central Oregon, which is celebrating more than ten years in existence. The Central Oregon team will participate in a discussion and planning session with the intention of inspiring and supporting a vibrant and sustainable NVC community in the Eugene-Springfield area. So that we can plan for the number of attendees, we would appreciate your contacting us at: secretary@orncc.net to let us know you plan to come. Join us in celebrating Marshall Rosenberg and helping to continue his work toward a more peaceful and alive world. The ORNCC Board " -- from the ORNCC Feburary 2015 newsletter: http://us6.campaign-archive2.com/?u=818b438cffe7f66ffe54129ad&id=eaabcc9eeb http://www.facebook.com/events/376655132514254/

Portland Revels marks its 20th annual Christmas Revels with a new production set in 17th century London during the Caroline era. The time of Charles I of England and the Three Musketeers will come vividly to life through period music, dance, costumes and European traditions in this holiday celebration from veteran Revels scriptwriter Gray Eubank.

Bruce Hostetler directs and Robert Lockwood is the musical director, with a cast featuring Tobias Andersen and Burl Ross. Christmas Revels is a popular form of seasonal production that features traditional dances, music and songs in celebration of the winter solstice.

A reading group for science fiction/fantasy works with themes and characters that provoke discussions about the concepts of gender and sexuality.The sci-fi/fantasy genre allows us to intimately experience worlds in which the rules/laws of our own world can be cast aside and different structures, (biological, technological, psychological, sociological, etc.) can be explored. Our intention is to read books that fall into the general category of science fiction or fantasy, expanding our selections as the group sees fit. Authors such as Octavia Butler, Ursula LeGuin, and James Tiptree are examples, but there are no set limitations on who we will read. The books we choose to read may leave us feeling positive and affirmed, but they may also leave us depressed or angry, hopefully they will always be thought-provoking, stimulating and challenging.

    Oregonians Against Discrimination – Creating a Legacy for ChangeBusiness Leaders Luncheon Thanks to everyone who attended our annual Business Leaders Luncheon on April 17th!  A record crowd of over 550 business and community leaders gathered at the Oregon Convention Center to stand against discrimination. It was such an inspiring event! Our emcee, Jonathan Nicolas of Moda Health, guided the audience through a series of special guests who spoke eloquently about  the work being done across our state to advance equality for LGBT Oregonians.  The program culminated with a powerful show of support from the business community to stand together in opposition to the pending Arizona-like discrimination measure. Mark your calendars for next year's Luncheon on Thursday, April 23, 2015!  Thank you to all of our sponsors: Liberty Circle: Morel InkKaiser Permanente Northwest Equality Circle: The StandardPortland General ElectricStoel Rives LLPNew Seasons MarketOregon Education Association Justice Circle: Oregon State UniversityUniversity of OregonOregon Health & Sciences UniversityEnterprise Rent-A-CarAl Machemehl & John HarrellJP Morgan ChasePort of PortlandModa HealthFred MeyerRyan Wayman & MassMutual OregonLane PowellComcast Freedom Circle: The Boeing CompanyPacific PowerPowell PhonesTravel PortlandSwaim StrategiesMetropolitan GroupMcDonald JacobsPortland Public SchoolsPortland State UniversityJim Lowenstein & Becki SaltzmanBuchanan, Angeli, Altschul & Sullivan LLPDavis Wright TremainePortland MonthlyBaldwin ConsultingMetroGerding EldinPride Financial PartnersThe Portland TimbersTonkon TorpPerkins Coie

As spring approaches, nonprofit NatureScaping is preparing for their annual Bare Root Tree, Shrub & Perennial Sale to be held April 25- 26 & May 2 from 10 am - 3 pm at the Wildlife Botanical Gardens located at 11000 NE 149th Street, Brush Prairie; west of the CASEE Center. This is the organization’s largest fundraiser, held in cooperation with students from the adjacent Center for Agriculture, Science, and Environmental Education who will be selling landscaping plants as well as vegetable starts. NatureScaping is offering a wide selection of native & fruit trees, shrubs, and perennials starting at only $8, $5, and $1 respectively. There will be Mason Bee cocoons 10 for $15 and garden photos. Quantities of the most popular varieties will be limited but members of NatureScaping get the best selection early on April 25th at 9:00 am. Membership is only $20 and can be purchased on site. NatureScaping will also have people on hand during the sale to answer any questions and to assist in loading plants. One of the best ways a homeowner can learn about which plants are right for their site is to visit the Gardens where natives are incorporated along with self-sufficient food production and more traditional landscape designs. NatureScaping maintains several specialty theme gardens, open year round and spread over three acres in Southwest Washington. The gardens, and devoted volunteer gardeners, demonstrate and teach area residents classes in pruning, mason bee keeping, and other gardening concepts that attract birds, butterflies, hummingbirds and other wildlife to residential gardens. All proceeds benefit NatureScaping in its mission to help educate the public about wildlife friendly gardening practices and the use of native plants.

This practice helps move energy along the spine, stimulates the endocrine system, decreases stress and eliminates toxins.

It promotes positive self-esteem and forward momentum in new directions.

Portland Revels marks its 20th annual Christmas Revels with a new production set in 17th century London during the Caroline era. The time of Charles I of England and the Three Musketeers will come vividly to life through period music, dance, costumes and European traditions in this holiday celebration from veteran Revels scriptwriter Gray Eubank. Beginning in the Tower of London in 2014, the Christmas Revels Keep Magic follows a young teen who, after being transported back in time, meets Henry Percy the Wizard Earl, and Morley, a resourceful prankster. Bruce Hostetler directs and Robert Lockwood is the musical director, with a cast featuring Tobias Andersen and Burl Ross. Christmas Revels is a popular form of seasonal production that features traditional dances, music and songs in celebration of the winter solstice. Familiar highlights of the Portland Revels’ annual event include mumming, the medieval Abbots Bromley Horn dance, and the central showpiece, the Lord of the Dance.
